Acetate and Challenge 11 at Artful Times

Thank you all for your fab Mona works of art it sure was fun using her again :)
Well this fortnight  at Artful Times, Sam has set us a really challenge of using acetate as a layer so thought long and hard over this Embossing seem to me  the obvious thing to do how ever you could stamp,  print or heat emboss onto it .
For my card I have recycled some packaging and embossed it with a cuttlebug folder and coloured with alcohol ink, made a background with distress stains and attached both layers with some washi tape topped off with a Timmy style butterflies (mine is lager as I used a spellbinders die)  .
Please come along and check out what Neet and Sam have made at Artful Times and you could be in with a chance to win a £10 voucher from Oyster Stamps
I'm on my hols at the moment and will be back sometime today and will catch up with you all tomorrow :)
